down between republicans and obama administration over s response to deadly terrorist attack in benghazi. u.s. ambassador to united nations susan rice weighed in on her controversial remarks on benghazi just a short time ago, joining us now is fox news correspondent katherine harrage. >> thank you lou. the ambassador to u.n. took the questions it was really quite unexpected she got two on the ben been scandal. and here is her response. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and scarily on the information provided to me by the intelligence community, i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers, everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> reporter: tonight this comes less than a week after a classified session on capitol hill where fox news was told james clapper, head of u.s. intelligence community of definite his team did not make controversial changes to the ta

dictator. earlier this week obama administration was praising morsey for his help. >> let me note our particular gratitude to president morsey of egypt for his commitment to regional security as well as to u.n. secretary general bon can i moon for his diligent efforts and of course president obama and secretary clinton have worked tirelessly to bring the parties to agreement. >> how should the u.s. handle morsey now. lt. ravel peters joins us. nice to sigh. morsey has said i want to be president of all egypt. every egyptian. he said i simply did this power grab or didn't put in those words, i simply did these decrees because there are all members of the mubarak regime the guys you threw out that are still lurking that i'm trying to protect you from. do you buy that. >> i think what president morse is i was really say something hey, democracy is great. -- each mubarak felt obliged to pay deference to the judiciary. you have to go to saddam hussein to find somebody who has seized so much power. basically morsi says nothing matters except what i say matters. it's a terrible embarrassment
. >>> this afternoon the obama administration weighed-in on the situation in egypt raising a number of concerns. let's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire f

regarding egypt. >> reporter: so far the obama administration is not calling out mohamed morsi directly. president obama spoke to mohamed morsi on wednesday to thank him for his personal leadership and handling the cease-fire and days later the state department said in a statement, the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and individual rights and the rule of law, consistent with egypt's international commitment. it goes on to say, quote, we call for all egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues, piece fully, and, through democratic dialogue. but, no mention, harris, of mohamed morsi by name. >> harris: molly henneberg, thanks, molly. we move on to hollywood and the world. actor larry hagman was so good at being bad. he has passed away, and people are laying flowers at his star at the hollywood walk of fame. he died yesterday in dallas, again working as the character that maids him famous the world over, best known for his role as is the s
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
she and the obama administration misled the american public about the deadly attack on americans in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's b
. happening now, new troubles for some top members of the obama administration. more republicans senators say they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, liby
in bengha benghazi. this as a cnn/orc new poll shows the obama administration's overall response to that attack does not get high marks. 54% of americans say they are dissatisfied with how the attack was handled. foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is at the state department this morning. >> hey, christine. the bottom line, as i look through this poll, i think it says americans do not see a cover-up. that's the one thing. but there is a lot of confusion in this poll, i think, in terms of what americans think, you know, happened, didn't happen, don't forget this has been -- it is confusing. and, it has been highly politicized. so when you look at some of the parts of this poll, for example, you know, thinking it could have been prevented, 48%. 42% think it could not have been prevented. and it's very hard, i think, for americans, to figure that out. who knows unless you have the intelligence information, and all of that has not come out yet. the other thing, though, is that americans are really split. 44-44 over how the administration handled it. you know, did they handle
. >> but now concern from the obama administration, state department spokeswoman victoria newland saying the decisions and declarations announced on november 22nd raise concerns for many egyptians and for the international community. one of the aspirations of the revolution was to insthur power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. while president obama was on his southeast asia trip this week, he spoke by phone with president morsi in an attempt to seal a israeli-gaza cease-fire. it is a relationship of trust. it's too early to tell if this latest move will change that. >> let's wait and see how morsy uses the powers. up until now, he's done pretty well in terms -- from the western perspective in working with israel. he has a lot to prove to the outside world and his own people. >> and that was dan loathian reporting. the obama administration is calling for call nm egyptian and encouraging the government to
live at the white house for us now. jennifer, what are we hearing from the obama administration? nothing from the president or the secretary of state yet. earlier in the week the white house released this photograph of the president on the phone with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu encouraging him to accept a cease-fire with hamas brokered by the egyptian president. today the state department issues this off camera statement about egypt, quote: one of the as aspirations of the revolutions was that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution it did not mexico president morsey by name or the coo he engineered two days after meeting secretary of state clinton in cairo, jon. >> jon: was a significant move from president morsey, why now? >> essentially because he was elevated during this past week with the cease-fire agreement he was seen to be a peace maker, a power broker by both the u.s. and israel. >> he must feel now with all the international acclaim that he has got a free hand and so within a matter of days he just begins to c
think we need that. so to me it is deceptive to load the extravagance of the obama administration to be paid off by people paying a gas tax. melissa: yeah. >> they did it, probably didn't know this. they did it in 1990. did in 1993. about a nickel increase each time. at that time almost doubled the gas tax. melissa: so incredibly gressive. hits the exact people they talk about protecting and that democrats talk about protecting last election. it goes right after, it hits the middle class and lower income people the hardest of course because it is incredibly regressive. let me ask you, i feel like today when i was hearing talk about trying to close this gap we're looking under every oke for more money and more tax revenue. doesn't seem like we're cutting spending very much s that the right impression. >> keep in mind, melissa. you and i know this. a lot of viewers might not know, we have 5.3 trillion deficit because of one person, that is obama. he doesn't seem to change his behavioral patterns now so it is not getting any better. how could we his own budget come up with $5.3 tril

based on open investment policy. i will give credit to the obama administration. they have been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years to put out an open invest a statement? why? because foreign direct investment creates jobs that are disproportionately export-oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and are 50 percent more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. we need to approach trade in the second among the term with that same degree of confidence going to the point that michael made. i think the world is ready to engage. the german chancellor proposed a trans-atlantic free trade agreement. at degrees to pick up on that the bill fourth. the trans-pacific partnership negotiated out in asia. the chinese followed closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to succeed. >> of get out of the way of the conversation, but you mentioned china. jonathan, he and i were in china. everywhere we went jonathan doggedly would hound that chinese. what are you going to do it mitt romney wins
the course of these interviews that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. the point these republican senators have been making is that that was a political statement because that served the white house well, to say that kind of thing before the election, because this was a big part of the president's campaign. >> interesting. >> that he got rid of bin laden. did she know the classified information? if so, why did she say that publicly about al qaeda when she may not have been able to talk about al qaeda with regard to this attack but might have known about it. >> so mccain said rice asked for this meeting. in light of what dana just said, how can rice win him over? >> look, i don't think it's about rice winning him over. i don't think this is about susan rice as much as it is about the unanswered questions of benghazi. we must understand something. there's very little leverage that senators in the minority have. one of the few things they can do is really make nominations and confirmations difficult. it's part of our system of checks and balances. i've seen it happen
. the romney transition team has been working on this for months and i am sure they are ready for it. the obama administration is ready to fill vacancies. this will have rebels all the way down the hierarchy. what i would like to discuss tonight is how we got from where we are, the politics of patronage, the challenges of recruiting political appointees , how the system results in major delays and managerial destructions and how it undermines presidential leadership and good management. and finally, possible remedies for reforming the system. why do we get mad at government incompetence? because we expect a competent and effective bureaucracy. you create bureaucracies that hire competent workers that bring specialization, expertise, accountability, and continuity. there is no alternative in large-scale systems to organize great amounts of people to accomplish a goal or mission. this is not the way the united states began. it took about a century to figure it out and half a century to implement. the spoils system of the nineteenth century, there has been a constant tension between partisan contr
the attack with 42 percent disagree. the majority of the public does not believe the obama administration initially tried to mislead americans about the attack that left the u.s. ambassador chris stevens a bad and killing three other americans. >> as we take a break we want to remind you about whether that is coming our way. we have flash flood watches posted just too our north as well as wind advisories for tomorrow morning around the bay area. we should give some sunshine today and it's a good data out hunkered down and get things ready for the storm's coming in. heavy rain tomorrow morning and showers on thursday. a real wallop as expected on friday and more rain and storms coming in saturday and sunday. we could see up to 8 in. of rain in the bay area through the weekend. we'll have more on the storm's coming up as we're expecting a lot of wet weather around the bay. we're still dealing with some fog and a bit of a slow ride as a major way on the james lick over to the bay bridge. we will be back. >> of the live look at a little sun coming in here. not for long, we will see rain come.
, a soup sandwich. you just had a lot of things coming at you. how wow grade how the obama administration handled in an extraordinarily unique crisis four years ago? >> look, we got a rule at the university which is we never let professors grade their own papers because they're not likely to be objective. but i think -- >> let me ask -- why did you get -- >> i think the right thing -- i think basically the right things were done. the evidence that the right things are done comes from the way the united states looking compared to four years ago versus the way europe looks, versus the way japan looks. the evidence comes from looking at the fact that if you looked at the fall of 2008 on every important indicator, the stock market, jobs, industrial production, global trade, whatever you choose, it was worse than 1929. and if you look at what's happened, it's not where we'd like it to be but this is nothing like 1929 to 1933 so i think you got to give a high grade, and it's because the president made the right basic diagnosis. the president said at the first meeting we had with him after he li
. president obama has bet his administration and the democratic future on this health care law and if it didn't work out well in the next few years it's going to have big impacts on future elections. stuart: and i've got another one. 48% think that any money raised with tax increases will be spent on new government programs. only 38% think it's going to actually reduce the deficit. so, here we've got a debt problem, some would say a crisis, and people are just not confident that we're going to address it, certainly not with new taxes. >> well, that's right. and look, skepticism about politicians is as old an as america, part of our cultural dna. in fact, i was surprised only 4% think this'll spend the money instead of using it as they promise. and one of the other things that we're seeing and i think this is really important in these discussions, if you ask people about across the board spending cuts, what everything is included, everything is on the cable. 65% say that's a good idea. but if you take something off the table and say, cut everything, but the military, support falls to 42%, so a
before the meeting, that's not a good sign. what obama does for the nomination, i don't kkow, but, clearly, what we have is an administration who can't get the story straight. i think as long as that's out there, this is going to be a very troubled period for susan rice and her perspective nomination. lou: the idea is that any president as a matter of tradition has the right to his choice to fill whatever office is at issue. in this case, the secretary of state. this kind of dissension and contradiction and contest between the two parties over ambassador rice really creates a different dynamic. do you think? >> well, it creates a different dynamic, i think, on two levels. number one, the appointment of the secretary of state is an extremely important thing for the country, but in this instance, again, it can want be used as a side show that obscures a much more important thing that we have to get to the bottom of here which is why didn't commander in chief take action he should have taken to protects americans? as far as susan rice is concerned, she is actually in a position now s
interested in status quo? >> one of the things the administration has come under a lot of fire for is it's been left focused on judicial nominations than it has been on electoral politics. at the level of the scoupreme court, of course president obama cares. if ginsburg leaves, harris might be a natural appointment. the real fireworks will begin if someone like justice kennedy or scalia leaves because that could change it to a majority liberal court. i think he'll go with a more conservative choice like judge merritt gar land on the d.c. circuit. i think the place to look for now is lower down, which is to say there are over 100 vacancies. keep in mind the federal judiciaries has about 870 members, so for that to be that many vacancies is striking and obama seems to care less about that than his predecessors. >> so to use a sports analogy, there needs to be a deep bench to fill the bench at the supreme court. kenji, great to have you here. happy thanksgiving to you and yours. >>> coming up, shoppers may be dealing with some extra crowds on black friday. we're talking about the protesters
said. >> president obama came out and defended her. if you want to talk talk to me. she went out on behalf of the administration. don't you put your potential secretary of state or figurehead to and the intelligent questions and come out and provide the information or is she out there like a puppet? >> one would think that machine involved in the intelligence briefing would and the right questions. the president only shows up for half of the intelligence prevings and when he was trying to defend or pick a fight with the republicans over susan rice, he made a statement that she knew nothing about beng f. she doesn't know about benghazi, why trot her out on the sunday shows. this is the wrong answer for secretary of state. hillary clinton's done an exceptional job and the president needs to show he will make a bipartisan play and i think john mccane would be the right person right now. >> that ain't happening but that is it an interesting choice. >> pete had too much turkey yesterday. and iconic roller could i have ther is under water and it may be a tourist attraction. constructio
